    Purple and gold looks amazing together.

    What about a light pink! Basically that’s my color scheme.

    @TrousseauHorse:  Having a shade of purple myself for one of my colors, I picked black and silver to accent it. Maybe go with either a pale gold/metallic champagne tone, pastel green, light aqua, or even lavender?

    I love plum and totally second the gold combo. You can also throw in a bit of pearl (or wool in this case) to lighten things up a bit.

    I voted pearl, but I love the idea of gold. Gold is such a killer awesome accent color and I wish more brides would pair it with their dark/jewel tones. Plum and gold, navy and gold, red and gold, green and gold… LOVE!

    Do you need a color other than metallic? I’d go with gold or silver, if you’re getting that color of chairs then it’s perfect, and I think plum + metallic is a great combo anyway. Not a fan of plum + any kind of pink personally.

    IMO the shape of the flowers is more a problem with uplighting than the color. A beautiful naturalistic arrangement would probably look out of place with uplighting – that kind of arrangement looks like the outdoors, and an uplit room is like the opposite of the outdoors. A more modern “architectural” flower arrangement might work best. Calla lilies would definitely fit that description, and they come in white, plum, and white/plum stripes, but I don’t know how expensive they are vs. other flowers.

    I’m voting pearl.  We used pearl paper for our ceremony programs and had the cake dusted with pearl shimmer…so gorgeous!

    I love the plum.  Maybe paired with pearl, gold and a blush pink…for a softer, more romantic look (paired with the deep jewel tone)??

    Flowers could be white with some subtle blush pink accents…for your bouquet, do the same and/or add some purple flowers.

    Good luck!

    I personally did plum & lilac. I also toyed with doing plum and powder blue.

     

    Here are a few photos of my combos:

    @TrousseauHorse:  we’re doing plum with accents of silver, pearl and gold. It is coming together sooo well right now!
